NSA Pictures Of You Naked Smash The Metadata Myth. Yahoo!

Apologists for the Obama Administration’s Big Brother electronic spying have spent much of the last year wagging their heads at concerns about privacy, saying that gosh, the age of privacy is just plain over, and we all need to accept that some of our private information will end up in government hands, because we need [...]

Real Men and Real Women

The five most recent posts on “real men” on Twitter tonight:

“Real men salute me cause I only talk the truth” “Real men rub they girls feet” “Real men take bubble baths” “The boyfriends who still hold bags, open doors, tell their girlfriends they’re beautiful and show respect are real men” “Real men don’t love [...]

New Frontier in Weather Science Emerges, Thanks to Anti-Gay Politico?

A tip of the pen to Fred Clark for bringing my attention to the hubbub surrounding the recent declaration by UK Independence Party (UKIP) politician David Silvester that massive flooding in the UK was a direct consequence of the decision to legalize same-sex marriage in the nation.

Reaction to this claim includes the usual outrage, [...]

Doesn’t The Book Of Matthew Actually Open Acceptance To Same Sex Marriage?

I was reading an article this morning, which defended the Biblical basis for opposing same-sex marriage, claiming that Jesus specifically opposed gay and lesbian marriage in the 19th chapter of the Book of Matthew when he stated, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, and [...]

Cabalicious Sex Plans

The traditional, divinely-endorsed form of marriage that we all can agree upon is the union between a man and a woman, just in order to make babies – this is what right activists say, at least. But then, reality confronts their vision of a unified, restrictive marriage state. The majority of Americans actually support the [...]

Bill In Congress Seeks To Create Marriage Inequality Across America

Dismantling constitutional rights that protect all Americans endangers the rights of all – not just the particular group of people who Randy Weber and his allies seek to target. Congressman Weber isn’t perceptive enough to grasp that concept, however. [...]

Defunding Abstinence-Only Failure

It’s fine for individuals to make decisions about sex according to their own religious beliefs, of course. It’s not acceptable, however, for the religious beliefs of a minority of Americans to warp the educational process for the nation as a whole. [...]

Jesus and His Dad Damn Sodomite Illinois with 57 Degrees and Cloudy Skies

We keep hearing that God will punish communities that allow same-sex marriage.

Well, today God had His chance. The Illinois House just voted to legalize same-sex marriage.

What mighty weather judgment did Jesus and His Dad send to Illinois in response? November temperatures in the fifties, with cloudy skies.

But just you wait! Tonight, it’s [...]

It’s been a Big Gay Year. Where are the Hurricanes of Doom?

Motivational speaker Ken Crow is the latest right-wing Christian to declare that God will use natural disaster as an instrument of judgment against communities that allow same-sex marriage. Crow posted to Twitter yesterday: “Will gay marriage destroy America?”

Crow links to his own article in that Tweet. Crow’s article supplies the answer to the [...]
